Parodies’ Paradise: 2015 “Uptown Funk”

The Bruno Mars/Mark Ronson song became a worldwide phenomenon with its major impact on pop culture… according to Billboard, it remains the biggest hit of the 2010s… spent 14 consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, seven non-consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and topped the charts in several other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Ireland and New Zealand… second best-selling single of 2015… one of the best-selling of all-time… won two Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year… 2.6 billion views YouTube making it the fifth most viewed YouTube video of all time. If Bruno Mars didn’t do so famous for the Mark Ronson wouldn’t be so many mockers mucking.

NOTE: Some of the home grown attempts are fun for family, but incomprehensible. Let’s skim off some creme…

(Don’t judge: watch the Byl Family with “‘Uptown Funk’ Holiday Parody” and you tell me you want to see twelve worse versions.)

Chris Carmona takes a very long coupl’a minutes of skit to get after his greedy spoiled targets with “North Pole Funk!” C’mon, let’s GO!

Long Island’s WBLI funnymen go a bit faster if not any funnier with another “North Pole Funk.” Nice alcoholic outro, tho.

Is it the song that inspires insipidity? High Society feels the spirit with “Uptown Funk–Christmas Daddies Version” for a telethon, but i can’t charitably share the fun. It’s like a musical exercise. B+

Amelia Carella of Paromedy mumbles up “I’m St. Nick” to remind you what a badass the gifted be. Hot Damn! Believe!

Dan Taylor brings the parody with Playa Santer in “Santa Funk.” Uh hunh. I’m deckin’ i’m trekkin’ i’m wreckin’. Uh hunh.
